In addition to showing your support by signing Montgomery County Community College’s “Save the Pell Grant” Petition,” the “Save Pell” website encourages you to:

  •  Call the White House comment line at 1-888-245-0215 and tell President Obama to take Pell Grant funding off the negotiating table.
  • Tweet to @whitehouse or @barackobama and use the #SavePell hashtag.
  • Sign this national petition and have your message go straight to the President’s inbox.
  • Email this post to five friends and ask them to do the same.

We also encourage you to contact your legislators directly to let them why the Pell Grant program is important to you. Click here to find your Congressional representatives.
